The Openreach network is used by a number of large providers, including Sky, TalkTalk and Plusnet.
Of the major providers, Virgin is the only one that does not use Openreach.
Does Sky use BT lines?
Tricky round to call this, as Sky uses BT’s network to deliver its broadband, which means the advertised download and upload speeds for BT and Sky Fibre are more or less exactly the same. But while Sky only offers average download speeds of 36Mb and 63Mb, BT also has a middle-tier package with average speeds of 50Mb.
Are BT and Openreach the same company?
In March 2017, BT Group plc agreed to make Openreach a separate company, Openreach Limited, with its own staff and management, but with the network assets continuing to be owned by BT plc for land-contract reasons, and with Openreach Limited being wholly owned by BT Group plc, BT plc’s parent holding company.
Does Virgin Media use BT Openreach?
Cable ISP Virgin Media has announced that, for the first time, they’ve officially expanded the coverage of their Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based ultrafast broadband and TV network to a further 2,000 premises in Pontyclun (South Wales) by using Openreach’s (BT) existing cable ducts.
Is Sky broadband faster than BT?
BT Superfast Fibre is available with average speeds up to 67Mb. Sky broadband is marginally faster than BT broadband in real world tests, and Sky is also cheaper, plus they have a better reputation for customer service than BT.
